Joshua Bedi

I am originally from Jackson, Mississippi. While I have always had scholarly inclinations, my interest in academia peaked when I fell in love with economics as a high school student at Northwest Rankin High School. Soon after, I began my undergraduate career with the International Business Program at Mississippi State University. I received a Bachelor of Business Administration in Business Economics and a Bachelor of Arts in German. During my time at Mississippi State, I had the privilege of traveling to Germany twice and working with Germany Trade and Invest as a Service Industries Intern for a small time.

After that, I completed a Ph.D. program at the Department of Economics at George Mason University, where I fielded in Austrian Economics and Public Choice. I am now at Copenhagen Business School as a Postdoc in Entrepreneurship at the Department of Strategy and Innovation. There, I work in close connection with the Mærsk McKinney Møller Chair in Entrepreneurship, Dr. José Mata.

My research interests currently focus on entrepreneurship, with a special emphasis on immigrant entrepreneurship. However, I have a diverse set of research interests which also include public choice and political economy, economic development, culture, the economics of crime, law and economics, the economics of non-violent action, polycentric systems, Austrian economics,  and applied microeconomics.
